Review: Tied Together
Tied Together is, as the name suggests, a game where you are stuck together. That's right, it's a co-op game! You can only play the game with 2, 3 or 4 people. Single Player is not an option, more souls more joy certainly goes for this title.
In Tied Together, the goal is to reach the end of each level together with your fellow players. Each level contains new challenges such as locked gates that require you to pick up a key, holes in the floor, nails, lava, or other craziness. While navigating through a level you have to do everything well coordinated, because after all you are stuck together. It is very important that you always communicate with your fellow players, which is probably why this game only supports local multiplayer.
Nice old school! Because Tied Together can only be played with real-life friends. You see it again. Communication options via the Switch Online service are not that great, so Tied Together only supports local multiplayer, and no online multiplayer. Keep this in mind if the game seems interesting to you!
The advantage of local only is that you can immediately give your friends a big whack as soon as they mess up a level for the umpteenth time. The game can be very difficult. Some levels are quite easy, or are completed 'accidentally'. A bit of the same principle as if you drilled your friends into the ground in one go during a game of Tekken on the Playstation 1 because you rammed in random buttons. Other levels in Tied Together, on the other hand, are extremely difficult and if you also have a fellow player who isn't even trying, it only gets harder.
Play co-op, get buffed
Another big advantage of Tied Together is that after playing a good session, you no longer have to go to the gym to train your abs. The game works very well on your laughing muscles. There are several ways to face death in this co-op game and the sound effects just make everything funnier. While playing, you are playing about 20% of the time. 40% of the time, you'll be discussing how to approach the level with your fellow players after failing it on yet another attempt. The other 40% of the time you're rolling on the floor laughing.
One is none, two is one
The game can only be played if there are two, three, or four of you. There are of course also different levels for the different number of players. More than 40 levels are available for duos and slightly more than 20 for three or four players. The goal is to complete the levels as quickly as possible, because the faster you are, the higher the medal you get. These range from bronze to gold.
The three or four player levels are, or seem, many times more difficult than the duo levels. This is probably largely due to the fact that you have to be even more coordinated with more players than two.
Tied Together is an incredibly funny and challenging co-op game that will make any party a lot of fun. Drink if you don't pass a level! The game can only be played in co-op modes and does not support online multiplayer. In total, the game will keep you sweet for a few hours, or salty, it depends. It's an ideal party game if you have enough Joy-Cons for four players. This game is really at its best with more players. The three or four player levels are extremely challenging and will keep you drinking for a long time if you apply the above rule. The game is only available on the Nintendo Switch eShop for €14.99.
